Only One Sleep Left

I sit here with my laptop in my bed.  Of course, I can hardly sleep.  Everything is pretty much packed-- and we are traveling lighter than we ever have before.  Hope that is just a sign of an experienced packer knowing how to pack just the essentials and not me forgetting a bunch of stuff. :) I guess I'll know once we are in Ukraine.

The kids are excited and anxious all rolled up.  Understandably.  There is going to be big change in our family starting tomorrow.   I read my last book with Dennis this afternoon right before his nap. It will be a month before I read him another one.  Thankfully he has big sisters who enjoy reading to him.  He is very excited to know that he is going to be a big brother very soon.  I hope I am able to post lots of pictures for him and Alex to look at.  They act like they grasp the concept of getting new brothers, but at the same time I don't think they will fully understand until the boys are actually home.

Please pray our boys home as we take off on this journey tomorrow.

We will be flying out of LA tomorrow afternoon.  I was able to check us in via computer and print out our boarding passes.  This is something new since I last traveled overseas. 

I pray that the Lord is preparing our two little boys' hearts.  I pray that they are safe and sound as well as all the other little ones in their baby house. 

Last night I met one last time with three of the most amazing ladies from our community group.  They will be spending time with the kids while we are gone to give my Mom a couple of hours break here and there.  They are such terrific ladies-- that my cup is filled with new found friendship with Sisters in Christ.

Praise the Lord for supportive family, friends, and the wonderful blessing of adoption.

Next stop-- Germany!
